Yellowstone National Park, Wyoming

Not even sure where to begin with our trip to Yellowstone! It was amazing! We only had 4 days there and didn't even get to see everything... you could easily spend a week there and in my opinion, not be bored. It was quite exciting to see so much different terrain in one park... it went from mountains to wide open fields to hot springs and geysers and Yellowstone Lake at the south end of the park! We camped at Mammoth Springs on the North end of the park and boy was that interesting. Apparently it was elk mating season while we were there, so the males were running around the campground bugling and chasing anything that got too close to the females. The parks people were there the whole time to monitor the situation and make sure people and elk were not getting too close to each other. All in all made for a few exciting days of camping. There were also lots of bison and bighorn sheep throughout the park. Yellowstone was probably the place we saw the most wildlife on our entire trip in Sept 2014. We did lots of driving back and forth along an area called Dunraven pass and that was not a road for the faint of heart. It had some pretty steep drop offs and I for one would not be driving a camper through there but lots of brave people were. Near the end of the photos you will see Todd on a set of steep stairs, this was Uncle Toms Trail and went down part way into the Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone. That was a crazy climb and apparently used to have rope ladders years ago. Can't imagine doing the rope ladders, the regular stairs were plenty steep. We definitely needed a few breaks going back up!!


Only 4 days? Amazing what you were able to capture in such a short time. You must go back and share what you missed! Thank you for posting this; very impressive.
You mentioned in your blog about the different kinds of terrain in the park. The excellent photos portray that very well.
